The sea-farers of Nurthia are the Halflings. They are quite capable seamean and any ship without a halfling on board is widely regarded as doomed to sink as the race has such a natural affinity for the trade they can immediately jump on board and control the ship like they had been using it all their life. They also have found a new source of magic, Pact Magic and are the widest practitioners of it with the exception of Fleurian pacts that a series of Half Elves discovered in the jungles. Their home city Lystia is currently undergoing a race war with the Tieflings over the attention the Halfling’s pirate activities have been attracting from an increasingly agitated Luthgard .
